27 you looked at is the cheapest one I've seen on the market. They go for $5K plus but you might want to take a class or two before purchase
because once you learn to sail you might have different priorities for the boat.
A good basic sailing book is "Start Sailing Right!"
For some reason missed this post until recently.
Upon discovery, I picked and read your recommended book. Good instruction! Thanks for the heads-up!
